My 8 year old is running the course now and beginging to really work to get further along. He is currently on a Radar Prime binding which he has not failed to come out of yet (knock on wood). I am looking at moving him over to either an OB4 or Reflex.
I really like the OB4 allowing for release in all directions which seems safer but Reflex (at least around here) is the main system used. My other hangup is both systems are not recommended for skiers under 90 lbs.
A couple questions
- is one system more accommodating for changes in shell size? (at 8 he will be growing fast)
- any experience with kids using either system
